Here we present a fully worked example of how to create element level security for an organisation that requires complete lockdown for entire branches of a dimension. It uses element level security down to the N level, applied via a TI.
The MONTH function in TM1 allows us to extract the number representing the Month from a date. Here we explain it’s syntax and give an example combining it with the DATE function.
Here is a really easy method for checking if an Attribute Exists in TM1 via Turbo Integrator process. It essentially does what an “AttributeExists” or an “AttrExists” function would do for you if they existed in TM1.
The Date Function in TM1 converts a serial date from a number to a string. For example Date(13947 , 1); will return the string ‘1998-03-09’.
Manipulating dates and times in TM1 has always been horrible. Here we discuss the time manipulation methods available from TM1 v10.2 onwards. These include NewDateFormatter, FormatDate and ParseDate. With them you can even change time from one time zone to another.
To create a dimension in a TM1 model use the DimensionCreate function in Turbo Integrator processes. Combine with IF and DimensionExists.
To check if a dimension already exists in a TM1 model use the DimensionExists function in Turbo Integrator processes. Combine with IF and DimensionCreate.
How do you join text files in a TI when loading into TM1? In this post we discuss a method to emulate an SQL join in a TI where a csv or text file is the source for the Turbo Integrator process.
Ever needed to create a text file from a data source and you have no tools available to interrogate it? We are doing a cloud Planning Analytics project for a client where they are using an ERP called Finance Plus over a database called Visual Foxpro. Mmmm, I hear you read – why is this relevant for me? Well, Visual Foxpro is a very close relative of dBase – a … Continue Reading
There are a couple of elements that must be established to make the secure gateway work. There are server side and local side requirements. This post deals with what has to be done on the IBM server so you can connect it to your local data. For instructions on establishing the local side of the connection, please see this post. Server Side Configuration In the Welcome Kit from IBM, there is a … Continue Reading
